We are an independent congregation of approximately 250 households that values the richness of Jewish tradition and respects the many ways our diverse community members connect to each other and the Divine. We believe in working cooperatively and collaboratively to create programs, curricular activities, and budgets in a manner that promotes the educational development of each student and the professional development of each staff member.

Our Religious School embraces the concepts of “adat” and “b’yachad”. We are a community and we are in this together.

3. The ability to create and implement hands-on, interactive, and engaging lesson plans and teach with enthusiasm
